Summery and refreshing dinner bowl today: rice noodles, butter beans cooked in turmeric and a pinch of pink salt, green beans, tomatoes, spinach, cucumber, peas, sauerkraut. I did try to take a bowl photo with dressing a few days ago and it lowkey made it look awful hahah so I chose not to repeat that mistake, but my go-to combo at the moment is a mixture of balsamic glaze, tamari and tahini, plus a very generous amount of nutritional yeast on top. Hope you’re all having a great week and happy 4th if July to all my American friends! 😊 -@earthofmariaa
